The Israeli Air Force attacked a Hezbollah base in southern Lebanon on Friday night, eliminating several radicals, the press service of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) reported.

“At night, IDF fighters struck a Hezbollah military complex in the city of Kantara in southern Lebanon. As a result of the strike, several terrorists were killed. In addition, the IDF struck another Hezbollah military facility in the vicinity of the city,” the report said.

The situation on the Israeli-Lebanese border worsened after the start of Israeli military operations in the Gaza Strip in October 2023. The Israeli army and Lebanese Hezbollah fighters daily fire at each other’s positions in areas along the border. According to the Lebanese Foreign Ministry, about 100 thousand people were forced to leave their homes in southern Lebanon due to Israeli shelling. The Israeli side reported about 80 thousand residents of northern Israel who found themselves in a similar situation.
